But Western experts say the alleged militia is an integral part of Beijing’s efforts to exert its territorial claims in the South China Sea and beyond. They claim its blue-painted vessels and their crews — allegedly funded and controlled by the People’s Liberation Army — can quickly bring a Chinese presence so large around disputed reefs and islands they are almost impossible to challenge without triggering a military confrontation.”The Whitsun Reef incident is unprecedented in scale and notable for its duration: the largest numbers of Chinese fishing vessels gathered at any time at one Spratly reef, and staying there for several weeks,” Samir Puri and Greg Austin, both senior fellows at the IISS, wrote last week on the organization’s blog.Beijing countered that the boats, which numbered 220 at one point, according to the Philippine government, were simply escaping rough seas by moving within a lagoon formed by the boomerang-shaped Whitsun Reef, which Beijing calls Niu’e Jiao and claims as part of its territory.The diplomatic back and forth between Philippine and Chinese officials continued last week, with the Chinese Embassy in Manila calling remarks by the Philippine defense secretary regarding the Chinese boats as “wanton” and “perplexing.” The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs fired back, deploring the Chinese Embassy’s statement, reminding China its diplomats are “guests” in Manila and pledging to issue daily diplomatic protests while Chinese vessels are in the Philippines’ maritime zones.”The People’s Armed Forces Maritime Militia don’t fish,” Carl Schuster, a former director of operations at the US Pacific Command’s Joint Intelligence Center, told CNN. “They have automatic weapons aboard and reinforced hulls, making them very dangerous at close range. Also, they have a top speed of around 18-22 knots, making them faster than 90% of the world’s fishing boats.”Some experts have taken to referring to the militia as “Little Blue Men,” a reference to the color of their boats’ hulls and to Russia’s “Little Green Men,” soldiers in unmarked green uniforms who infiltrated Crimea before Moscow annexed it from Ukraine in 2014.”The Militia is a key component of China’s Armed Forces and a part of what it calls the ‘People’s Armed Forces System,'” Conor Kennedy and Andrew Erickson, two leading American experts on the subject, wrote for the US Naval War College in 2017.A 2020 US Defense Department report on the Chinese military mentions only 84 actual maritime militia boats, all assigned to a unit operating out of Sansha City on Hainan island, in the northern reaches of the South China Sea. The unit, established in 2016, gets frequent subsidies to operate in the Spratly Islands, the report said.Using automatic identification system data, they said the boats at Whitsun had patrolled the Union Banks, where Whitsun Reef is, as well as other Spratly Islands features like the Subi and Mischief reefs, both of which have been built up and militarized by the Chinese armed forces.Jay Batongbacal, director of the Institute for Maritime Affairs at the University of the Philippines, summed up what Beijing has done in recent weeks at Whitsun Reef and recent years across the South China Sea — 1.3 million square miles of water, almost all of which Beijing claims as Chinese territory.”Instead of a kinetic threat, Chinese fishing vessels present more of a disruptive one. Deployed in even limited numbers, fishing boats can inhibit, if not prohibit altogether, a warship’s ability to conduct” anti-submarine warfare and flight operations with its helicopters, Luo and Panter wrote.”Weaker states, aware of Chinese fishing vessels’ possible government affiliation, might hesitate to engage with them in a way that could provoke a PRC (Beijing central government) response,” they said.”This is a toxic mix: due to the maritime militia’s deniability and the core interests at stake, the PRC (People’s Republic of China) has a high incentive to employ it, but the more frequent its operations, the greater the likelihood of interactions with US vessels that could spin out of control.”The US kept up the dialogue with Manila last Thursday, when US Secretary of State Antony Blinken tweeted he had a substantive conversation with Philippine Foreign Secretary Teddy Locsin “discussing our concerns with People’s Republic of China militia vessels in the South China Sea.”When then-US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last summer accused China of “bullying” its Southeast Asian neighbor, the Chinese Embassy in Washington said the US State Department “deliberately distorted facts, exaggerated the situation in the region and attempted to sow discord between China and other littoral countries,” the state-run Global Times reported.But in 1974, as China fought with then-US ally South Vietnam over control of the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, the use of fishing vessels in combat operations proved their worth, Grossman wrote.”A key lesson learned for Beijing was that leveraging fishing militia forces was far less likely to trigger US intervention in the matter even when the threatened neighbor was a US ally,” Grossman said.The 2009 incident showed how close the US and China could come to an actual confrontation because of Beijing’s alleged use of fishing boats for military purposes. But Grossman said, given neither the Impeccable incident or any of its island occupations have blunted Chinese ambitions in the South China Sea, more deployments are likely.”If history is a good indication of what to expect in the future, then Beijing is likely to double down on the PAFMM in virtually any scenario imaginable. That means it should be a force to be reckoned in the years to come,” he said.In particular, Wray identified an indictment relating to a Chinese government operation called “Foxhunt,” which he alleged involved Beijing conducting “uncoordinated illegal law enforcement activity” on US soil as a means to “threaten, intimidate harass (and) blackmail” members of the ethnically Chinese “diaspora.”In July 2020, the US government charged two alleged Chinese hackers who authorities said had taken part in a “sweeping global computer intrusion campaign,” including attempting to access US coronavirus research and targeting human rights activists.Here’s the topline: More than half of people polled (51%) reported that they already had at least one shot of the vaccine. Another 14% say they plan to get one of the vaccines as soon as they can. Another 12% said they are waiting and seeing whether to get the vaccine. And finally, 1 in 5 (21%) said they will “likely never” get the vaccine.It’s that last group I want to focus on — especially because Monmouth broke out the “nevers” by party. And here’s what they found: More than 4 in 10 (43%) of self-identified Republicans said they would “likely never” get the vaccine. That’s up from 1 in 3 (36%) of Republicans who said the same in March. And the GOP number is roughly double the 22% of independents who say they never plan to get the Covid-19 vaccine and more than 8 times higher than the 5% of Democrats who say the same.But my educated guess is that those sort of skeptics likely fall more heavily in the “wait and see” category in the Monmouth poll. The large number of Republicans who say they never will get the vaccine seems to me to be better explained by the fact that, unfortunately, the coronavirus has been politicized — largely by ex-President Donald Trump — almost since it arrived on our shores.After dismissing the virus — and its impacts — in early 2020, Trump repeatedly promised that things were getting better and that we would be back to normal very, very soon. (Remember when he said he wanted to see church pews filled for Easter 2020?) Then once it became clear that until a vaccine was developed masks were our best defense against the virus, Trump spent months downplaying the need for masks and mocking the likes of Joe Biden for wearing one. And in the waning days of his presidency — and after he had left office — Trump publicly questioned the judgment of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and sought to undermine the broader views of infectious disease experts.The Soviets occupied Afghanistan during the 1980s and ultimately withdrew after resistance from fighters, collectively known as mujahadeen. Among them was Osama bin Laden. The US funneled arms and help to these anti-Soviet forces. But in the post-Soviet power vacuum, the Taliban was formed under the leadership of Mullah Mohammed Omar, who wanted to create an Islamic society, expel foreign influences like TV and music from the country and impose a repressive version of Islamic law that is particularly harsh on women. By 2001, they controlled nearly all of the country.Support was nearly unanimous. The military effort was begun on authority from an “authorization for the use of military force” resolution passed one week after 9/11. Only one lawmaker, Rep. Barbara Lee of California, opposed it. That resolution was first used to authorize action in Afghanistan, but presidents since have leaned on it for action in at least 37 different countries, according to the Congressional Research Service.”Since September 11, an entire generation of young Americans has gained new understanding of the value of freedom and its cost and duty and its sacrifice,” he later said.The number has fluctuated quiet a bit. President Barack Obama came to office promising to refocus the US military there over Iraq, where Bush also invaded. At times during the Obama administration there were about 100,000 US troops deployed to Afghanistan. Obama tried to end US combat operations in Afghanistan in 2014, but left more troops in the country than he planned. His successor — President Donald Trump — sent new US troops there before largely drawing them down and engaging in peace talks with the Taliban.In February 2020, he petitioned the courts for an early release from prison, stating that he had terminal kidney failure and a life expectancy of less than 18 months. But the US Attorney’s office for the southern district of New York said Madoff’s crime was “unprecedented in scope and magnitude” and is “sufficient reason” to deny Madoff’s request.Judge Denny Chin, who originally had imposed the sentence of 150 years, denied his request for release, calling his crime “one of the most egregious financial crimes of our time,” and one that continued to take “a staggering human toll.””When I sentenced Mr. Madoff in 2009, it was fully my intent that he live out the rest of his life in prison,” the Chin wrote in his order last June. “The symbolism of a 150-year sentence was important: the public trust had been eroded by Mr. Madoff’s ability to manipulate the system for so many years, he deserved to be punished according to his moral culpability.”He had a legendary career on Wall Street, famously delivering astronomical returns for his investors, which included director Steven Spielberg, actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick and New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon.He served as chairman of the Nasdaq for several years in the 1990s and amassed beach houses, boats and a Manhattan penthouse. But Madoff was arrested in 2008 and pleaded guilty to eleven felony charges in 2009. He had been using money from new investors to pay back earlier investors. He supposedly had a total of $65 billion under management, but two thirds of that money was a figment of Bernie Madoff’s imagination. The rest was his investors’ principle.Irving Picard, the court-appointed trustee charged with recovering assets stolen by Madoff, together with the Department of Justice, had recovered $14.4 billion as of March of this year, of which $13.6 billion has been returned to Madoff victims. In addition, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation has provided $600 million in insurance to victims.Madoff was born April 29, 1938, in New York City’s borough of Queens, where he met his wife Ruth in high school. They had two sons, both of whom worked for their father’s firm. Mark Madoff, the older son, died by suicide in 2010.”He stripped a vulnerable police officer of his police baton,” Sullivan wrote in a 64-page ruling. “He then used that stolen police baton to force another officer away from his post and into a mob of rioters who proceeded to viciously attack him, leaving him bleeding from the head.”Sabol took drastic steps after the January 6 insurrection because he “reached a mental breaking point,” according to court filings. He traveled from his native Colorado to Boston and booked a flight to Switzerland, where he believed he would be protected from extradition, according to court filings. But he abandoned that plan after seeing law enforcement officers at the airport.Motorists spotted his car driving erratically and police pulled him over in Clarkstown, New York, where they found him “covered in blood” from severe cuts on his arm and thighs, according to court filings. He said, according to court documents, “I am wanted by the FBI” because “I was fighting tyranny in the DC Capitol,” and notified the officers that “my wounds are self-inflicted and “I am done fighting.””The Court sincerely hopes that is true,” Sullivan wrote, referring to Sabol’s mental recovery. “But the Court cannot ignore that Mr. Sabol presents a flight risk nonetheless. Considering the steps he took to flee to Switzerland to avoid arrest, Mr. Sabol is the epitome of a flight risk.”Sabol’s lawyers have said his behavior on January 6 “appears to have arisen in the context of a hysterical throng,” and they submitted letters to the court from friends and associates attesting to his “peaceful and nonviolent” history. His attorneys also claimed that video of Sabol’s alleged assault was unclear as to whether he was “helping, rather than harming” one of the officers.The year is 2012 and the stars of the show are 1,500 seven and eight-year-old golf prodigies representing 60 different countries, all vying for a chance to become a U.S. Kids World Champion at the daunting Pinehurst course.Of the eight we meet up close, three are young girls, of whom two come first. Not that it’s all about winning; it’s a raucously fun movie designed to get kids into golf. It’s stressful watching though — the parent-child relationship shown in microscopic detail.”You can be a child prodigy and have all the talent in the world, but it won’t get you anywhere if you don’t put in the work,” she told CNN Sport over the phone before winning the inaugural Mack Champ Invitational in Houston in March, an event set up by PGA Tour star Cameron Champ for the game’s best junior golfers from diverse backgrounds.Although neither player made the Saturday finale at Augusta in the 54-hole event — the first two rounds take place at nearby Champions Retreat before a practice round for all competitors at Augusta on the Friday — they have time on their side.The current momentum around women’s golf is perhaps something Pano’s grandmother — seen in “The Short Game” superstitiously clutching a packet of Mentos to bring the youngster luck — saw on the horizon before she died in 2013, just after a fourth USK World Championship title for her granddaughter.There’s a superstitious streak in her family too. If you’re looking for good omens, she shares a December 30 birthday with five-time Masters champion Woods while her initials — ANA — have brought past success at ANA Inspiration host course Mission Hills in California.”Angel Yin is 22 and has already competed at two Solheim Cups, she played the US Open aged 13 and she’s a young superstar, but it’s amazing how many people haven’t heard of her and that’s a problem,” added McDonnell, whose company also has German golfer Olivia Cowan and Ireland’s Leona Maguire on their cards.With the LPGA/USGA Girls Golf initiative increasing participation by more than 1,800% from 2010-2020 among females aged six to17 — with a goal of breaking 100,000 by 2022, say the USGA — this is where the game is heading in 2021.The ride-hailing firm has around 3,500 employees in the Bay Area and more than 22,000 worldwide. Employees who have gone remote will be required to return to their pre-pandemic location by September 13, the company said.”Why didn’t we make a more radical shift? It ultimately comes down to the kind of company we want to be,” she said. “Our business also exists in the real world, on the streets of thousands of cities, and it’s important we stay connected to the places we serve.”In “Furious 7,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s character flies an ambulance off a bridge and into a drone. In “Fast Five” cars drag a giant bank vault through the streets of Rio and in “Fast & Furious 6” the climax takes place on the longest runway in film — and likely human — history.And as you have probably guessed after watching the trailer, the Fast & Furious franchise is, uh, not subtle. There’s a lot of action, a lot of high speed chases, and a lot of “oh my God, did they actually just do that?” — all big pluses for theaters as they enter their historically lucrative summer season.Movie theaters are crawling out from under a year that completely ravaged their business as the Covid pandemic shut down mass entertainment. In order to return to something even approaching normal they need audiences to get off their couches and into theater seats — and the films that cry out to be seen on the largest screen possible are the best way to accomplish that.Big blockbuster movies have always been important, but they are even more essential now as more studios choose to release films in theaters and on streaming services simultaneously or, more ominously for the business, bypass theaters altogether.Since there are few potential blockbusters scheduled for release between now and June 25 (all due respect to “Cruella” and “A Quiet Place Part II”), the “F9” opening weekend box office returns will be watched very closely — a potential bellwether for the sustainability of movie theaters in a post-pandemic world.The series has made nearly $6 billion at the worldwide box office since the first film, 2001’s “The Fast and the Furious,” according to Comscore (SCOR), and the sequels have morphed from tales about Los Angeles street racing to international espionage — a transformation that has exponentially expanded its global footprint.One of the biggest markets for the series is China, which has become the top movie market in the world. If “F9” hits there, as well as in the US, that, alongside vaccinations ramping up, could give studios the confidence to release more films in theaters again.It could also give audiences more incentive to return to the cineplex after being away for so long. After all, nothing builds buzz like a hit. And that would also be good news for Disney (DIS) whose Marvel’s “Black Widow” opens in theaters and on Disney+ just two weeks later on July 9.Conversely, if “F9” misses the mark at the box office it could present a stark picture for theaters going forward. After all, if big, crowd-pleasing, global films can’t fill seats — during the summer, of all seasons — what can?Ultimately, there’s a lot of time between Wednesday’s trailer and the film’s June 25 release, and “F9” is not the only big film opening this year. Yet, Hollywood and theater owners will be keeping a watchful eye as the premiere approaches.Warner Bros.’ “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which premiered in theaters and HBO Max last month, is the biggest hit of the pandemic. The film, in which the two iconic movie monsters square off, has made more than $360 million worldwide thanks to solid openings in both the US and China. (Warner Bros., like CNN, is owned by WarnerMedia.)
In “Furious 7,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s character flies an ambulance off a bridge and into a drone. In “Fast Five” cars drag a giant bank vault through the streets of Rio and in “Fast & Furious 6” the climax takes place on the longest runway in film — and likely human — history.On Wednesday, Universal released the newest trailer for the film, which will finally hit theaters on June 25 after multiple delays. Away from the series’ signature action, the trailer is an in-your-face, save-the-date reminder to the franchise’s fan base and an industry that really needs some box office hits.And as you have probably guessed after watching the trailer, the Fast & Furious franchise is, uh, not subtle.
